Hey guys! I've got 6 giveaways open today, counting the one you can win at the bottom of this post. You can always find all of my giveaways on my Giveaways tab, but I'll link them up here too. :)

Dead Beautiful - Melanie Dugan (adult mythology)
Good Neighbors & The Dispatcher - Ryan David Jahn (adult thrillers)

The Homecoming of Samuel Lake - Jenny Wingfield (adult southern fiction)
The Bay of Foxes - Sheila Kohler (adult literary fiction)
Never Enough - Denise Jaden (YA, details below)

Reviews Posted in June:
My reviews are much less plentiful this month for two reasons: 1) I didn't get much reading done for the first week of June because I was at BEA 2) I'm trying to get a jumpstart on the massive amount of reading I have to do for Dystopian August (since I'm planning on nearly two reviews per day) so some of the reviews will not be posting for a couple of months. You'll see those books on my Book Challenge page and Goodreads read list, but nowhere else for a while.

I'm running behind on my book challenge. *cries* I need to catch up. Eek!

Book of the Month Giveaway!
This month, as seen above, I'm giving away a copy of Never Enough by Denise Jaden. I had a bunch of favorites this month, and I wish I could afford to give away a copy of all of them. My first choices for giveaways are always ones I received for review, since I want to give back to the publishing house and the author. Since all of my giveaways this month are adult, I wanted to give away some YA fiction.

Never Enough impressed me so incredibly much. I rarely give out 5s on the first read of a book, but after I wrote my review and tried to choose a rating, I realized that I couldn't think of any reason to rate it down. Check out my review to learn more!

This giveaway is international, so long as The Book Depository or some other similarly-priced, reputable online book store ships to you! Just fill out the Rafflecopter!

Dude, I seriously forgot that adult books really do take longer to read. It's seriously slowed me down. :-p

Thanks, yo!
